Change in Control Agreement
On April 13, 2012, Wright Express Corporation (the "Company") entered into a Change in Control Agreement (the "Agreement") with Steven A. Elder, the Company’s Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.
Pursuant to the Agreement, following a without cause termination or a constructive discharge (both as defined in the agreement), within 90 days before a change in control (as defined in the agreement) and ending 365 days after a change in control, he will receive (i) a cash payment equal to the sum of his then current base salary plus his then current target incentive compensation award, multiplied by 200%, payable, at the company’s option, in either one lump sum, equal installments not less frequently than once per month over a twelve month period, or a combination of lump sum and equal installments not less frequently than once per month over a twelve month period, and (ii) any and all base salary and incentive compensation awards earned but unpaid through the date of such termination and any unreimbursed business expenses. In addition, upon such termination, those outstanding and unvested stock options and unvested restricted stock units held by Mr. Elder of the date of termination will immediately become vested. In addition, the Company shall pay to Mr. Elder in a lump sum an amount equal to the present value of the Company’s share of the cost of medical and dental insurance premiums for a 24 month period. The Agreement does not contain any tax-gross up provisions.
The Agreement includes non-solicitation provisions and restrictions on Mr. Elder’s employment with competing enterprises for two years following termination of his employment. The Agreement conditions Mr. Elder’s receipt of payments on his signing a release of any and all claims against the Company and also contains customary terms relating to: timing of payments; cooperation in connection with any legal claims; and protection of confidential information.
A copy of the Agreement is filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated by herein reference. The description of the Agreement in this Item 5.02 is qualified in its entirety by reference to Exhibit 10.01.
